In teacher education there has been the call for more accountability for nearly a century. As a result, we find a primary accountability instrument being the nationally approved professional accreditation bodies that are independent of department's of education. Two such accreditation bodies for teacher education are (1) the National Council for the Accreditation of Teacher Education (NCATE), developed over 50 years, and (2) the newer Teacher Education Accreditation Council (TEAC), which got its final approval in 2003. In this workshop we look at the roles and functions College LiveText, with its electronic capabilities for the creation, collation, aggregation, and assessment of student learning outcomes, play in helping one southern university in the USA prepare for accreditation in fall 2009.
